Foray into new territory: with the MAN TGE, the long-established Munich brand enters the world of transporter vehicles for the first time.

What started at 7.5 tonnes in the past now has a total permitted weight of 3.0 tonnes. With the TGE, MAN puts a lightweight commercial vehicle on wheels that convinces users who have worked with its big brothers in the heavy truck industry for many years. Designated TGE sales consultants consistently ensure a tailor-made customer solution.

Full service provider

With an available range between 3.0 and 44 tonnes, MAN is evolving into a full service provider when it comes to having the right solution for every transport task. The new TGE sees MAN transferring all its usual customer oriented services from the truck business into the transporter class. In the process, the best solution for the customer always remains the main focus.

Specially trained and schooled staff is available to provide a competent point of contact. Years of experience and smooth integration with various body manufacturers is as much a matter of course as the close cooperation with the respective corporate customers. The cooperative teamwork between customers, body manufacturers, Sales and Service, thus results in the creation of a vehicle which offers the highest utility value throughout its service life. In terms of target groups, MAN is mainly focusing on the logistics and construction sector, but industry-specific requirements from the skilled trades and passenger transportation are also future areas of application for the lightweight "truck" from MAN Truck & Bus.

Common features in all applications: With the lowest cW value of 0.33, the lowest fuel consumption in its class and low repair and maintenance costs, the new MAN TGE impresses with the best total cost of ownership (TCO).

Plenty of space and high load capacity

In addition to the closed delivery van and utility wagon with windows, the selection of vehicle bodies is increased with the addition of chassis with single and crew cabs. Of course, the latter can also be ordered ex works with a wide variety of configurations. For the new MAN TGE, there are two wheelbases, three roof heights and three vehicle lengths to choose from.

The vehicle lengths for the closed delivery vans range from 5,983 mm to 6,833 mm and even up to a 7,388 mm long MAN TGE with large overhang. The vehicle heights are estimated at 2,340 mm, 2,575 mm, and 2,800 millimetres. The corresponding combination results in a maximum load volume of 18.3 cubic meters.

Standard equipment: an LED-lighted bright interior cargo space. The entry-level MAN TGE starts at 3.0 tonnes permitted total weight – with the upper end of the range being 5.5 tonnes. An additional 3.5 tonnes can be added via a trailer coupling. The maximum payload provided by the 3.5 tonne vehicle is extraordinary. In an ideal scenario, it can carry up to 1.5 tonnes of cargo.

The range of the 1,968 cm3-large engines comprises versions with 75 kW/102 HP, 90 kW/122 HP, 103 kW/140 HP and 130 kW/177 HP.
